I talked with the Library of Congress before the event and the C-Span person that was at the lecture and everyone seemed fine with our posting the video.

IANAL but have an amateur interest in copyright, so thanks for indulging me.

If CSPAN made an exception to their policy and gave you permission to put the talk on the site that's great. However, the item info page for the talk indicates a CC license (Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs). This would presumably grant the right to hold a free public screening or put the talk on PBS or a public access cable channel. Both of these uses are specifically prohibited on the licensing page I referred to above.

Did CSPAN really agree to the CC license for the talk or is the licensing info in error?

While we're on the subject, what about all the other CSPAN stuff on this site? Am I right in assuming that because the curators approve the material, that the Archive feels its on sound legal ground in hosting it?
